I 100% acknowledge that my previous statement was a use of my privilege as a straight, white male from the US. I have about as much privilege as anyone can have in this day and age. What's important is how I choose to use that privilege. I'm not the target of bigotry and hate. This is exactly why I must stand up for those without so much. If I do not how can I expect those who face persecution to do so? We stand stronger when united together against hate than we do divided.

Rode my bike to work today for the first time in a while. Tried a new route. Down from 19 miles (~30km) to just 17 miles (~27km) but going a little more diagonal.

Would be nice if @SDF Mastodon could get setup with keybase for mastodon verification: keybase.io/blog/keybase-proofs

I want to like vscode but I just can't get past the idea of using a separate application window for editing files and navigating the filesystem. It might take longer to type what I want in a terminal than it does to click through a file tree but the idea of moving my hands off the keyboard makes me cringe

Why do people refuse to use any version control? I mean, what the hell, this is 2019! We're not programming by banging two rocks together anymore. We moved on. We are smarter than this.

We all have a right to privacy, which you can exercise today by encrypting your communications and ending your reliance on proprietary services.

Support @yegortimoshenko for putting this whole resource up!

Apparently copy/paste between crouton chroot and ChromeOS should be possible if I install the crouton Chrome extension and enable the "extension" target for the chroot but it's still not happy. Anyone have experience getting it working? Not sure if it's just because I'm using xterm and it's not configured properly or if it's an issue with the integration itself.

Sad to see that the Asus C201 and other 32bit ARM Chromebooks won't be getting Crostini support like I hoped. Guess I'll be waiting until the Asus C101PA comes down in price on ebay. Until then, Crouton with xiwi will have to do

MetaArpa dues paid on 2018-10-04 but my meta membership was revoked @SDF

fixed Tootdon on my new phone finally. Apparently I was bitten by the sign-in bug! just had to sign out and back in after updating the app, thankfully.

I got a bouncy ball to sit on at work. Very entertaining for video calls.

Ladies and gentlemen, witness the blistering speed of Thunderbolt3. thinking I would have been better off with dd over a DSL connection.
